Review

"An engrossing tale of adventure and commitment".-- Defenders of Wildlife

Product Description

Jane Goodall's adventures with the chimpanzees and the important discoveries she has made about them have gained her worldwide recognition. Now she tells her exciting story in her own words!


When Jane Goodall was twenty-six years old, she ventured into the forests of Africa to observe chimps in the wild. On her expeditions she braved the dangers of the jungle and survived encounters with leopards and lions in the African bush. And she got to know an amazing group of wild chimpanzees - intelligent animals whose lives, in work and play and family relationships, bear a surprising resemblance to our own.

Jane Goodall has also written the bestseller In the Shadow of Man and The Chimpanzee Family Book. In 1977, she established the Jane Goodall Institute for Wildlife Research, Education, and Conservation to promote animal research throughout the world.
SUMMARY:
A DREAM COME TRUEFrom the time she was a girl, Jane Goodall dreamed of a life spent working with animals. Finally she had her wish. When she was twenty-six years old, she ventured into the forests of Africa to observe chimpanzees in the wild. On her expeditions she braved the dangers of the jungle and survived encounters with leopards and lions in the African bush. And she got to know an amazing group of wild chimpanzees — intelligent animals whose lives, in work and play and family relationships, bear a surprising resemblance to our own.

Jane Goodall's adventures with the chimps and the important discoveries she has made about them have gained her worldwide recognition. Now she tells her exciting story in her own words.

4.0 out of 5 stars MONKEY BUSINESS! 18 Feb 2004
Format:Paperback
Bought this for my 8 year old son and pinched it to read myself. Jane reflects on her years and experiences in Gombe over 30 odd years, on the survival problems facing our closest cousins, on how she has helped them and lastly on what we can do about it.
As you journey along with her there are some stories that nearly made me cry and had a sobering effect on others I have recounted them to.
An enjoyable, exciting read for children - packed with great stories and adventures with an added environmental message. Buy it for your kids but also enjoy it yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific true-life adventure story 8 Feb 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I liked the book because it was an adventure story. In one part, the plane crashed. Jane Goodall, Grub (her son), and Derreck (the pilot) didn't get hurt, but they had to cross a river full of crocodiles! I also like the book because it is about Africa, a continent I only know a little about. Besides the amazing animals, I learned that there are important fossil beds in Africa.
Chimps are a central part of the story. The author does a good job of describing the chimps' habits and behavior. The chimps challenge each other for the alpha position (highest ranked position in the group).
I found Jane Goodall likeable because she has interest in saving an endangered species. She reported that chimps can make tools and use them as well as we can. No one knew that before Jane discovered it. Dr. Goodall is also the leader of a special club dedicated to saving chimpanzess.
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes the fascinating behavior of animals.
